Apple today quietly rolled out a new section in its Mac App Store that features applications that have been made to work with the latest version of its Mac OS X operating system.
Dubbed "Apps enhanced for OS X Lion," the collection of 48 applications ranges from Apple's first-party software to third-party productivity tools and games. The vast majority are paid applications, as opposed to freebies.
Apple released Lion in late July as an update to Snow Leopard, the previous version of Mac OS X. As part of the newer version of the system software that powers the company's Mac computers, Apple added additional support for multitouch gestures, auto-saving and resuming, along with full-screen capabilities. However, not all developers have gotten their apps ready to work with those new APIs. The new collection of apps represents the ones that do.
